Rosacea is a skin condition that is characterized by flushing and persistent redness on the cheeks, nose, chin or forehead. Blood vessels may become more visible and discomfort is common. Patients typically experience periods of remission as well as flare-ups that can be triggered by stress, weather, alcohol, exercise and certain foods. To avoid flare-ups, patients must choose their skin care products very carefully – and do their best to stay away from known triggers.
Dr. Grossman will develop a personalized protocol of treatment based on the signs and severity of your rosacea. Pulsed Dye lasers and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy can reduce the redness and eliminate visible blood vessels that may be prominent with the condition. A series of treatments yield the best results.
